My information is 2nd hand, so take it for what it's worth, but this was the common theme of the parents I know. They weren't expecting their kids to get equal playing time, or to even play all that much (in some instances), but they did expect them to get better, and most didn't believe that happened, except for a small pocket of kids who were always being coached up.Don’t have any boys but nice try! Don’t have to drop the thought that Player Development at Frosh level at Elder stinks! All I want is more than 15-20 kids to improve at Football every year on the Frosh level. Guess that’s asking to much.
They said the coaches were respectful and treated the kids well, but weren't sure most of the kids were better football players at the end of the season. They did have stories saying their sons told them they did a ton of standing around at practice.
Don't shoot the messenger. I have no reason to believe they'd make it up, and they're weren't super mad about it. They were just surprised that more kids didn't get active coaching and that practices would be so hands off for a lot of kids.
